One of our most anticipated horror movies of 2018 *was* Josh Boone’s superhero horror movie The New Mutants, which had been set for release on April 13, 2018.
Today, unfortunately, we’ve learned that the film has been bumped a full 10 months, taking it out of 2018 entirely. The new date? February 22, 2019.
Well. Now it’s one of our most anticipated movies of 2019, I guess.
In the film, “five young mutants, just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves.”
The cast includes Henry Zaga as Roberto da Costa a.k.a Sunspot, a mutant with the ability to absorb and channel solar power; Blu Hunt as Danielle Moonstar, the Native American telepath also known as “Mirage”; Alice Braga as Dr. Cecilia Reyes, a medical doctor who has the ability to generate a protective bio-field around herself but also has more going on than she lets on; Anya Taylor-Joy as Illyana Rasputin, also known as Magik, who uses teleportation; Charlie Heaton as Sam Guthrie, a.k.a. Cannonball; and Maisie Williams as Rahne Sinclair, a.k.a. Wolfsbane, who can turn into a wolf.
Boone directed from a script he co-wrote with Knate Lee.
